    I have added the Instagram Feed app to my site however when I go to preview it and click on the photo which should lead to a larger version of it with the caption and comments, it won't load.

      Hi,

       

      Thank you for contacting us.

       

      This is due to your Instagram account being private, which means that only Instagram users following you are able to see the expanded feeds. Please turn off your privacy settings in your Instagram, reconnect the Instagram Feed App and try again.

       

      Please contact us if you require any further assistance.

    I like the new features added for the IG feed, however, if the last IG post happens to be a video, it AUTOPLAYS and becomes very annoying.  This should be an option in the settings whether or not to autoplay videos... 

     

    Thanks

    Hello,

    In my page named "PRESS", I have added an Instagram Feed but cannot see the comments under the photos. Can you please help ?

      Hello emmanueltiberghien,

       

      I have visited your site and I can verify that no comments appear under your images in your Instagram feed.

       

      However, I have logged into your Instagram account using my mobile phone and I was able to see that there were no comments on your images.

       

      I have commented one on of your images through my Instagram account and I was able to see my comment as I clicked on the image in your social feed (comment was deleted).

       

      Please test it on your end by leaving a comment on one of your images in Instagram and let us know if you experience any issues.

       

      We are here should you need any further assistance.

      Best Regards, Nati - Wix Support Team

    I tried to deactivate my instagram account and add a new one, but it keeps re-connecting me to the old one? Why is that. 

    1. I press the 'disconnect account" button

    2. Then I press the "reconnect account" button

    3. WIX thinks it's smarter then me and decides to re-connect the account I originally connected in the first place. Which is not my intention. 

    Can you please help me, before I lose my mind...... I don't want to lose my mind :-(

     

    Regards,

    Happy but annoyed wix customer

      Currently your Instagram app does not point to any account, since after removing and re-adding it you have not yet configured its settings.

       

      Please reset your app settings. Should this not help, please point out the new and old accounts and let us know the details.

       

      Thank you in advance.

    When I try to add the instagram app and or blogger app they say they are experiencing "problems", why? It's been doing this for a week now? Why has it not been fixed, I'm seriously regretting signing up with wix. Nothing works right and I don't understand why it so difficult, like the blog? Why can you only add one picture? Who wants that? Now I have to host my blog on blogger, and now I can't even import it into my wix site cause the app won't work?

    Seriously dissapointed in this product and would ask for a refund if I hadn't spent so much time and effort working on my site.

    Thx.

      Hi emmanuelgarcia85

       

      To change the account for Instagram, you can disconnect the current account in the app settings, then connect another account.

      Hi,

      I was not able to locate your Instagram app on your site.

       

      Please supply us with the exact location of this app.

       

      I could see that your menu bar directs to  http://instagram.com/rippedradio.

      Is this your account?

       

      Please also supply us with a link to the account you'd like connected to your app.

       

      Awaiting your reply.

    Hi,

    The issue I'm having with this app is that it's only posting my photos, not the associated captions. My instagram photos are pretty useless to my followers if they can't read the associated captions. Can the app be improved to actually show the entire feed, and not just the pictures? Or is there another app (besides Tint - I have a different problem with Tint) that I can use that will allow this? Thanks!

    • Hudson Wix Team

      Replied by Hudson June 13, 2013

      Urban Living by Alia. 

      I'm using Tint right now, but the problem with it is that it doesn't let me specify which feed I want to show up on which page. It just shows all of them on all of my pages. I would like just my Facebook feed on my homepage and just my Instagram feed on my "Dining" page. (The full Instagram feed, not just the photos.)

       

      Thanks,

      Alia

      Replied by Effie June 13, 2013

      Hi Alia,

      I would suggest that you use Tint for your Home page, so you can have the Facebook feed, which would mean that you would have to delete the Instagram feed from the App.

      And then for your Dining page you could add the Instagram App. The Instagram App does show whatever descriptions you fill.

      Unfortunately there is no way of using Tint for more than one feed at a time and also specify which ones you wish to use where.

      For more information regarding this App, please click here.

      If you would like for that to be possible, please contact them directly and place your suggestion.


      Don't hesitate in contacting us again should you need further assistance.

      Sincerely,
       

      Effie

      Thanks for the quick response! That's exactly what I wanted to do, but I've only been able to find the "Instagram Feed" app in the Wix Marketplace, and that one only posts the photos. Where can I find the Instagram App that also shows my descriptions? When I go to "Add" and "Apps" I don't see an Instagram option, and I don't see any other relevant apps in the Marketplace. 

       

      Thanks!

      Hi,

      You can either use Social Gallery or even Tint itself to show your Instagram photos as well as Instagram Feed.

      Hi there,

      I'm afraid that last response did not address my issue at all. If someone could please review the conversation I've had so far with your experts and address the question I'm actually asking, that would be great. Thanks!

      Hi,

      The instagram app is the instagram feed. As Effie suggested you can either add the instagram feed or Tint to show your photos. Unfortunately with instagram feed you can't display the images description. Therefore as Ilia suggested, you can use the Social Gallery to display your images.

      If you need any further assistant, please let us know.

    Hi. I am having difficulty in adding my instagram feed onto my web site. I have used internet explorer and google chrome, but to no avail. When I click add feature to site, it leads me to log into my editor and that is all. Instagram does not appear for me to add on. Looking forward to a response. Thanks.

      Hey

       

       

      I can see that you have a flash site, this is the forum for HTML sites that are using our app market for Instagram

       

      You are able to convert your flash site to HTML

       

      Please read the following notes before submitting your site (you can find all the notes here).

      1. Keep in mind that this tool is experimental and may not export the site like you wanted, this tool is designed to give you a head start in converting your Flash site to HTML5 but manual modifications are usually required afterwards.

       

      2. Once the site you submitted is exported, a copy of the site will be created in your Wix account (similar name but starting with html_name) The original site will not be affected! Also any premium package/domain connected will not be effected unless changed by you manually.

       

      3. Some of the features that are possible in Flash are not possible on the HTML5 editor at this stage. This means, things that are not possible in the HTML5 editor will not be copied into the exported sites.

       

      4. Please make sure to submit the Wix URL of your site regardless if its connected to a domain or not (www.wix.com/username/sitename)

       

      5. Once your exported copy was created, you are welcome to post your feedback on this thread. Please include the URL of the exported site for reference (the original URL would also help)

       

      6. If you have a premium package and want to transfer it to a new HTML site you can do that. For more information follow this link
